Nature’s beauty can be easily missed — but not through Louie Schwartzberg’s lens. His stunning time-lapse photography, accompanied by powerful words from Benedictine monk David Steindl-Rast, serves as a meditation on being grateful for every day. via TED.com

Today’s NYT Style interviews photographer Steven Klein, whose aging images of Amber Valletta (see above) were shown last week as ‘Time Capsule’, organized by Russian art impresario Dasha Zhukova at the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture in Moscow.
Some visitors were seeing the show for a second time. It made its debut in New York in September at the Park Avenue Armory, in a cavernous room lighted only by the video panels overhead. Some visitors were as beguiled, but others responded more coolly. Age happens, said Carine Roitfeld, the former editor of French Vogue: “It’s a reality, unfortunately.”
Ms. Roitfeld was doubtless aware that in raising the specter of human decline, Mr. Klein had taken a pickax to fashion’s most fearsome taboo. “Showing age is always a disturbing thing,” said Stefano Tonchi, the editor of W magazine and the former editor of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, who commissioned the video project and published still images from the shoot in W’s September issue.
